Obnoxious Media regreats to inform you that Pastor Adam Thourogood has died at 44 in a farming accident.

The pastor of a large Virginia Beach church died Tuesday in a farm accident, according to Suffolk city officials.

Around 3:45 p.m., emergency communications received a 911 call about an accident in the 3900 block of Butler Drive, which is in the rural Whaleyville area, according to Suffolk City spokeswoman Diana Klink.

Police and fire-rescue crews responded to the scene, where 44-year-old Adam Thourogood Sr., of Chesapeake, was pronounced deceased. Klink said Thourogood was operating a tractor when it overturned.

The cause of the accident is being investigated, Klink said.

Thourogood was the senior pastor of New Jerusalem Church of God in Christ, in Virginia Beach. This is the same church where Thourogood’s uncle, Bishop Barnett Thourogood, died of a heart attack during a Sunday service in 2012. Bishop Thourogood was the church’s senior pastor at the time.
